An update on the sinus headache/cold...

Okay fellow bloggies, I have the perfect solution for a sinus headache/cold. I am allergic to penicillin, so all of the GOOD antibiotics are out of the question for me. So, I usually stick to over the counter decongestants to take care of a sinus headache/cold.
I've been taking medicine since Saturday night, and it was improving, but not by much. Yesterday, I had an appointment for an adjustment at the chiropractor. When I walked in, he said, "You sound awful!". I said, "I know. If you could fix this sinus problem, we'd be great.". His response? "Actually, I can."
He hooked me up to a stem machine with two pads right above my eyebrows and two pads just below my eyes...right where the sinus cavity is located. And...WOW! You don't feel the relief instantly, but I started to feel loads better last night. I didn't wake up during the night at all. And when I woke up this morning, almost gone! So...I went back today for a second dose!
Sinus headache you say??? Go to the chiropractor! :)


  1. Wow, that's awesome. Like you, I'm allergic to antibiotics but I use herbal remedies. I'll have to remember this one next time.

  2. Wow thats so cool!! I"ve never been to the chiropractor but my bf has... he liked it :D

  3. Glad you're feeling better!
